Kathleen Zuidema took to Facebook to try and find a new home for her three beloved dogs after a heartbreaking cancer diagnosis. Her post quickly went viral and eventually reached Danielle Cochran who was more than happy to adopt the trio. The two women both live on a tiny island in Washington State, but had never met! Now Kathleen no longer has to worry about her dogs when she passes, which is a bittersweet relief. Ugh, this story. All the tears!

BBC brings us the story of how dogs are becoming a legitimate method of detecting cancer cells. It has been determined that most dogs can do this; they're just don't know we're interested in their ability.

OMIGOSH! What an amazing thing to do for a little girl! This made my day :) From Seattle Children's Hospital:

Maga is a cat-loving teen patient with cancer at Seattle Children's Hospital. She's had to be in the hospital many times, and during her stays what she misses most is her own cat Merry. We asked our Facebook fans to share their favorite cat photos with us, and got an awesome response -- 3,000+ photos! We used these pictures to create this "cat immersion" for Maga -- an audio/visual experience to bring thousands of "virtual" cats to Maga's room.

Our thoughts are with you, Maga!
